During my younger years the word Japan is something we associate to where Filipino workers work and mostly in the Entertainment industry. Mostly singers, dancers and performers. This is a blog entry but I will write collaborating the past, the present and even the future.
Just a few days ago I was very lucky to be able to visit Japan. Together with my wife and our closest friends we decided to visit and discover the country they called “The Land of the Rising Sun.”
Knowing about Japan started at a young age during elementary days where it is part of our history classes, then goes with Television and Internet. Now, I got the chance to be in Japan and fully experience the culture and spend a bit of time with its people. The experience was really amazing considering how well coordinated these people are.
The respect with each other and one good example is following lines and not overtake others. That is huge, you always see everyone in line and patiently wait for their turn. The quality of the work they do is simply amazing, not only relating to the output but the dedication and love for it, I think this what makes Japan a strong country, because the strong sense of Patriotism.
Seeing Mt. Fuji was like being in heaven for me. It was so grand and majestic the way it tops all mountain in all of Japan. The shape and the way how the snow sitting on the top most areas of the mountain made it even beautiful. Traveling helps and improves our sense of appreciating the beauty of nature has to offer.
My friend tried this grilled/bbq food and was really good. Very juicy at the same time the flavor is just delicious.
I so loved this Coca-Cola edition they have that I brought one as a token here back home. Good thing with this is that it’s not plastic, it is made of aluminum and can be recycled. The edition depends on which city you are in, this one is in Kyoto, the one I brought home was from Nagoya.
My overall experience visiting Japan was a feeling of discontentment. I was there for 8 days and I think this was not enough. There are still a lot to see in Japan and that is where my discontentment came from. This means that i will be coming back! But for this trip worth every penny and I am thankful to be able to visit and see Japan for the first time.
